Southampton were up for a fight last night and took the game to Champions League hopefuls Leicester and gave them a game for which they got their just desserts!
The 1-1 outcome isn't going to hurt Leicesters' chances and Southampton can be proud of the way they played despite being down to 10 men for 80 minutes of the game.
TODAY IS A DOUBLE-UP DAY. IF LEEDS WIN, THE WINNING POT WILL BE DOUBLED!
(Appearance fees remain at 500 regardless)
As for you guys, big respect to one particular player who went against the grain and dropped the lot! Full details at the end.
Back to the EPL today as we enter the final stages of the season...
It's a very interesting situation in the middle of the table as their are still chances for any of these teams to still make a European spot and I can only look at this from a Leeds point of view and so this prediction is based on hope more than anything!
Neither of these two teams have been firing on all four recently but Everton pulled out a rather unconvincing win last time out against Arsenal. Villa are still without Grealish and struggled to a draw against West Brom and so although I really want Villa to win, or at least draw, I can't see much beyond Everton taking this by a narrow margin.
The pressure will be on them with Leeds breathing down their necks after we thump Brighton earlier in the day!
Prediction: Everton 1 : 0 Aston Villa - First Goalscorer: Richarlison
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.00 BST
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
The Winners were...
A huge shout-out to @cabinet24 who Ward-Prowse as first goal scorer and a great lesson in thinking outside the box. He takes 6500+500 tokens and deservedly so!
The draw was predicted by a couple of you so well done to @jfang003 and @harpreetjanda who both take home 3500+500 tokens each.
Appearance fees go out to; @savagetobi, @hykss.sports, @marvinix, @anicom, @yeckingo1, @corporateay, @oswvin01, @ralph75 and @jersteemit!
